Latest Theoretical physicists Stories
World in brief STOCKHOLM The award of the 2008 Nobel Prize in physics to two Japanese scientists and a Japanese American for helping explain why the universe is asymmetrical, and thus fit for life, prompted an angry response from Italy's National Institute of Nuclear Physics yesterday.
Two Japanese scientists and a Japanese-born American have been awarded the 2008 Nobel Prize in physics for their work with subatomic particles which provided new insights into the nature of matter.
One of the most significant moments in the history of science may come after a new particle collider starts work this year beneath the Swiss-French border, according to a renowned physicist, Brian Greene.
By Fiege, Mark ABSTRACT The atomic scientists' intense fascination with nature helped them to produce the knowledge necessary to create the bomb.
Famed physicist Stephen Hawking said Thursday that Pope John Paul II tried to discourage him and other scientists attending a cosmology conference at the Vatican from trying to figure out how the universe began.
The original manuscript of a paper Albert Einstein published in 1925 has been found in the archives of Leiden University's Lorentz Institute for Theoretical Physics, scholars said Saturday.
ALIEN PLANET takes viewers on a dramatic virtual mission of the future â€“ a trip to a fictional planet known as Darwin 4 â€” in a new Discovery Channel world premiere Saturday, May 14, 8-10 PM (ET/PT).
The post office turned its attention to science Wednesday, issuing four new stamps honoring pioneering American scientists.
In 1921 Einstein won the Nobel Prize not for his work on relativity, but for solving a puzzle that had baffled scientists since 1887 -- the photoelectric effect. In one of the three ground-breaking papers he published in 1905 he explained it in one astonishing blow: the light is quantized. His work was the first step in launching quantum theory.
Thirty-five years after Moon-walking astronauts placed special reflectors on the lunar surface, scientists have used these devices to test Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity to unprecedented accuracy. The findings may help to explain physical laws of the universe and benefit future space missions.
Annalen der Physik (Annals of Physics) is a peer-reviewed physics journal established in 1799, and is one of the oldest journals still in publication today. The journal is the successor of the Journal der Physik first published in 1790. The journal has been published under a variety of names throughout its history. The journal was published only in German until the 1950s, when it began publishing both in German and English. In 1990, after the German reunification, English became the only...
Carl Friedrich Freiherr von WeizsÃ¤cker (June 28, 1912 "“ 28 April 2007) was German physicist and philosopher. He was the longest-living member of Werner Heisenberg's research team which investigated nuclear studies in Germany during World War II. Some argue whether he and the team willingly engaged in the development of a nuclear bomb for Germany, or if its failure was intentional because they did not want the Nazi regime to have nuclear weapons. WeizÃ¤cker was born in Kiel,...
Niels Henrik David Bohr (October 7, 1885 - November 18, 1962) was a Danish physicist. He made essential contributions to understanding atom structure and quantum mechanics. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark to Christian Bohr and Ellen Adler, Bohr got his doctorate at Copenhagen University in 1911. He then studied under Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. Based on Rutherford's theories, Bohr published his Bohr model about atom structure in 1913, introducing the theory of electrons...
